#30DaysWild Random act of wildness No. 26. Ian has been wielding the hedge trimmer in a wildish but not entirely random way – trimming back vegetation under and alongside the line of the electric fence. It’s so we can get the cows back onto Popehouse Moor.
The white flowers in the foreground also have to go – thick stands of hemlock water dropwort that’s beginning to dominate. We’ll be cutting it back with the scythes. The cows have a taste for the roots, but it’s not good for them and can cause serious poisoning. It’s not good for people either, not that we’re about to start munching. Pretty wild all round really.
